One of the quickest ways to start building cultures for your setting is to take inspiration from actually-existing cultures. What do you do when you don't want to crib off the same culture cultures that everyone else has used a hundred times before? 

Essential Ethnographies offers the convenience of building from preexisting cultures and the flexibility and novelty of working with cultures that are less familiar to your players or readers. Whether it’s half-elves inspired by the oldest inhabitants of Europe, humans living in the coldest north (or south!), ogres that see their cannibalism as an act of benevolence, or aliens with a kind of ritualized policing, this series aims to make your job easy. 

This volume of Essential Ethnographies features comprehensive descriptions of... 

  • The Ibibio, farmers and fishers with an interesting mythology around their secret societies. 
  • The Euskaldunak, the oldest remaining inhabitants of Europe. 
  • The Wari, an Amazonian tribe whose grieving process involved cannibalism. 
  • The Khmu, dry rice farmers of the highlands of China and Laos. 
  • The Unangax, who live in a region of the arctic so desolate it is called "the place that God forgot."

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
